Pain Relief Bath Salts Recipe

© Rebecca Dawn Dillon

Ingredients:

17 oz. Epsom salt
.7 oz. fractionated coconut oil (or other carrier oil of choice)
.1 oz. polysorbate 80 (optional)
1 mL tangerine essential oil
1 mL peppermint essential oil
1 mL eucalyptus essential oil

Instructions:

To make these pain relief bath salts, begin by weighing out the Epsom salt into a large glass bowl. Set aside.

In a separate container weigh out the fractionated coconut oil and polysorbate 80. Mix well.

(Polysorbate 80 is a solubilizer that bonds with oil. It will keep the essential oils and fractionated coconut oil from sitting on top of the water in your tub. While this product is optional, it is recommended especially in the absence of a carrier oil so that your skin isn’t coming into contact with the essential oils undiluted in bath water when adding essential oils to bath salts.)

Then using graduated plastic transfer pipettes, measure out and add the essential oil. Stir to combine.

Now combine the wet ingredients with the Epsom salt and mix until all of the ingredients are incorporated evenly throughout the bath salts.

Package your pain relief bath salts in your container of choice then label as desired for personal use or gifting.

To use your pain relief bath salts, add 1/2 to 1 cup to warm bath water as desired and soak for 20 minutes.

Mermaid Body Wash Recipe

Ingredients:

16 oz. Stephenson Suspending Body Wash Base
.4 oz. skin safe fragrance oil of choice
1/2 teaspoon standard biodegradable cosmetic glitter, color of choice

DIY Mermaid Body Wash! Whether your daughter is dressing up as a mermaid for Halloween or playtime, she can feel like a mermaid everyday with this easy 3-ingredient DIY glitter body wash made with earth friendly biodegradable glitter!

(You can also surprise her with a kid-friendly soapmaking book to further encourage her creativity!)

Using a digital scale, weigh out 16 oz. of suspending body wash base.

Next, weigh out your fragrance oil of choice and stir into the body wash base. (I recommend using a fragrance oil that does not have a yellow tint and is free of vanilla as it will affect the color of your final product.)

Now measure out the glitter and mix into the scented body wash base.

Using a small funnel, fill two 8 oz. body wash bottles, then cap and label as desired.

I used frosted bottles for my mermaid body wash which made the glitter hard to detect through the container. However you can use 8 oz. white bottles or 8 oz. clear bottles based on your packaging preference.
